The story of outlaw Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, fight and steal their way across the vast and rugged heart of America in order to survive.
Dutch Van Der Linde & Hosea Matthews began working together in 1878, 21 years before the events of the game. They "adopted" Arthur Morgan a year later, making these three (along with Dutch & Hosea's wives, Annabelle & Bessie) the founding members of the Van Der Linde Gang. As of the start of the game, John Marston has been with the gang for 15 years (although he only recently returned after fleeing for a year). Bill Williamson has been a member for 5 years, following his dishonorable discharge from the army. Javier Escuella joined a year after Bill, having fled Mexico as he was wanted for treason there (due to his participation in an attempted revolution). Micah Bell, Charles Smith & Lenny Summers joined the gang 6 months before the events of the game.

It is said by John Marston in Red Dead Redemption that he had a daughter while he was part of the Van der Linde gang, and that she died years after leaving the gang. However in Red Dead Redemption II she is nowhere to be seen (or even mentioned), even when John is still part of the gang.
